He then discusses the problems of the Catholic Church today, answering tough questions about the Church's position on divorce, celibacy, contraception, abortion, women's ordination, ecumenism, etc., and talks about the challenges and hopes of the future of the Church and the world at the beginning of the Third Millennium."--Cover

Last testament : in his own words by Benedict( Book )

7 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since retiring from the papacy in 2013, the first Pope in over 700 years to do so, Pope Benedict has lived quietly in a convent in the Vatican gardens in Rome. He has devoted himself to a life of prayer and study and has vowed to remain silent, until now. So much controversy still surrounds Pope Benedict's time in office. In this book, written with bestselling German author Peter Seewald, he addresses the issues of his papacy and reveals how, at his late age, governing and reforming the Church was beyond him. Last Testament is also an autobiography, recalling Pope Benedict's childhood in Germany under Nazism, his early development as a priest, and eventually his appointment as Archbishop of Munich. After becoming Pope, his account deals with the controversies that rocked the Catholic world: how he enraged Muslims with his Regensburg speech, what he did and did not do to stamp out the clerical sexual abuse of children, the 'Vatileaks' scandal and how he broke up a gay cabal within the Vatican itself. At all times, we see a man who is shy and retiring and modest being exceptionally open and frank with the outside world. In this Last Testament, a unique book insofar as no other living Pope has had the opportunity to write an account having left office, Benedict gives in his own words an unprecedented view of the difficulties, the achievements and the consequences of his time as head of the Catholic Church worldwide. -- Provided by publisher

Jesus Christus die Biografie by Peter Seewald( Book )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in German and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Leben des Jesus von Nazareth ist ein Leben voller Geheimnisse: Er verbringt seine Tage in Armut, ist aber kein Asket. Er predigt Vergebung angesichts der Spirale von Hass und Gewalt und droht gleichzeitig mit dem Gericht Gottes. Er sammelt viele Menschen um sich, liebt aber nichts mehr als die Einsamkeit. Er legt sich wie ein Rebell mit der Obrigkeit an, beansprucht aber selbst keine weltliche Macht. Er kennt alle jüdischen Gesetze, war aber nie Schüler eines Rabbis. Er beeindruckt mit überlegener Klugheit, preist aber nicht die Gelehrten, sondern die Einfachen im Geiste. Er besitzt gewaltige Wunderkräfte und scheint am Ende nicht einmal in der Lage, der eigenen Folter zu entgehen. Was fasziniert die Menschen bis heute an diesem Jesus? Mit dieser Frage im Gepäck hat sich Bestsellerautor Peter Seewald nach Israel und Palästina aufgemacht und ist den Spuren des Mannes aus Nazareth gefolgt - von der Geburt in Betlehem bis zur Kreuzigung auf den Hügeln von Golgatha. Er hat mit den Mesnchen dort gesprochen, die antiken Quellen befragt und die biblischen Berichte auf ihren Wahrheitsgehalt geprüft - und erzählt eine mitreißend moderne Geschichte über jenen Mann, von dem ein Drittel der heutigen Weltbevölkerung sagt, er sei Mensch und Gott zugleich

Benedict XVI : Volume One: Youth in Nazi Germany to the Second Vatican Council 1927-1965 by Peter Seewald( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Benedict XVI: Volume One offers insight into the young life and rise through the Church's ranks of a man who would become a hero and a lightning rod for Catholics the world over. Based on countless hours of interviews in Rome with Benedict himself, this much-anticipated two-volume biography is the definitive record of the life of Joseph Ratzinger and the legacy of Pope Benedict XVI. Volume I follows the early life of the future Pope, from his days growing up in Germany and his conscription into the Hitler Youth during World War II to his career as an academic theologian and eventual Archbishop of Munich. Volume II, to be published in 2021, will cover his move to Rome under Pope John Paul II, his ascension to the papacy, and his controversial retirement and news-making statements under his successor, Pope Francis I. This necessary companion to Benedict's own memoir, Last Testament, is the fullest account to date of the life of a radical Catholic leader who has continued to make news while cloistered in retirement in the Vatican gardens. -- Provided by publisher
